Reviewed yesterday NEW

Nice pub with lots of outdoor seating which is great when the weather is good. Nice varied menu but opted for the Sunday roast when was very nice, choice of 4 meats, proper roasted potatoes, yorkshire puds and nice veg. Desert menu is a bit more simple but still great

We booked a return to the Vineyard for a farewell supper with friends before they travelled home Scotland. The evening was perfect; excellent service, food, wine and ambience. A very memorable and fitting send-off for our friends. We will certainly return.

Food is good and setting is nice. Can get a bit loud as some of the clientele are rather obnoxious and you can barely hear people on your own table...... staff could be a bit more polite

In the past I have had quite good meals here which deserved the restaurant prices they charge but recently we had fish and chips which was a very average meal. They skimped on the chips the fish was very ordinary and the meal was disappointing.If they were charging say eight or nine pounds per head I would not have bothered... More

We went there for dinner Thursday night and we had a good time. They were very busy but we didn't feel it. Our waitress was very nice and polite and although they were very busy they managed to make us feel welcomed! Our sharing platter was delicious. My lamb was spot on. You could not ask for more!

We were driving back from Tonbridge and wanted to stop somewhere for lunch. Lamberhurst has a lovely restaurant The Vineyard, easy to find, ample parking and a lovely location! We arrived just after 12noon, hadn't booked a table and we were with our lovely cocker spaniel. Greeted by charming staff, and told we could have a table in the bar... More

I would not go back here; waiters were rude and unwelcoming. I work in hospitality so I know how demanding the job can be, but I have never been made to feel like that when dining out before. Disappointing and a waste of hard earned money.

This was our third visit to the Vineyard with a group of friends. Despite a lot of the other reviews our service was very good and the staff were charming and friendly. However the food was only satisfactory. My wife had the scallops which were fine but lacked vegetables, salad or potatoes just a few trimmings (chilli!) and for £17.50... More

Had been warned of bad service by a local before going. However, I couldn't have rated the lad higher who served us. He was working out in the garden bar taking drinks and food orders. When we asked if he could find us a table inside as it was getting chilly, he did so very quickly and was so polite... More
